Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić began yesterday’s visit to Priboj (Central Serbia) by visiting the town’s free zone, as well as the production premises of the Turkish company, Flex Academy.
After talks with the Turkish investor, he announced the construction of another plant by the same company.
“The company will employ additional 150 people. These are hard-working people, and the only question is whether there will be enough workforce to employ,” Vučić told representatives of the Turkish company, announcing that gas will soon arrive in Priboj as early as this year. Minister of Economy Andjelka Atanaskovic and the Turkish ambassador were also present during the visit.
The Turkish company has been producing pipes, steel and plastic water pipes since 2017 in Serbia, in a production facility spanning 20,000 square metres. It has 300 workers here whose average age is around 30 and 50% of the total workforce is women. It exports to the EU, Russia and the United States and expects to sell goods worth more than 22 million euros this year. Since 2017, the company has been operating in the former FAP building.
